Can someone please show me where it says in the Bible to forgive and forget?
The Psalms say:
But that’s talking about God forgetting our sins. Yes….
We need to forgive but forgetting?
I know God wants us to forgive but don’t you think He knows we are human … not perfect … He knows we are gonna fail.
I’m not saying to not strive to be Christ-like but more of watch your back. Meaning? God doesn’t want you to be a punching bag, He doesn’t want you to be taken advantage of. Not at all my friends. Forgive but be on guard of your heart.
I grew up most of my life thinking I needed to be close and keep my abusers in my inner circle – cause that’s what good Christians do right? Forgive and forget…right?
Again look at it this way: God created you and thinks the world of you so much that He sent His son to die for you. If He thinks that much of you – why are you allowing yourself to be beat up or lied to time after time?
When did I learn this lesson? This year.
Be kind to yourself … please realize your worth as a child of God.
